Victim Advocacy

Hotline Advocacy

Hotline volunteers are integral to our crisis intervention services – they answer calls on our 24-hour hotline. *

Family Services Volunteer

Assisting with childcare in the shelter and for groups is an important and gratifying role that makes a difference in the lives of the children we serve.*

*Victim Advocacy, Hotline Advocacy, and Family Services volunteer opportunities require the 60-Hour Domestic & Sexual Violence Certification.
